Product: Hp z420
Operating System: Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)
My pc was working just fine then it started to give me 6 beeps when I turn it on
I tried another video card and it worked .
I have gtx 1050 ti video card
Side note : about 5% percent of the times the pc will start and act normal and the gpu runs .. but mostly it will not and the gpu fans won't spin and I get the same 6 beeps.
Some technicians told me it's a power supply problem and others told me my gpu is dead although it works sometimes
